Empowering Futures: Bridging Tettenhall Students and Businesses Together!

Employer Engagement Events

Tettenhall Wood School is excited to invite local employers to our Employer Engagement Events. More than a gathering, this is a golden opportunity to bridge the aspirations of our promising students with the practical needs and future visions of the local business community.

Here’s What’s In Store:

  • Behind the Scenes: Embark on a guided tour to witness the spirited learning hubs where our students cultivate their passions and talents.
  • Face-to-Face with the Future: Engage directly with our students, understanding their dreams, strengths, and the diverse skills they’re eager to contribute.
  • Culinary Interlude: Relish an afternoon tea, meticulously crafted by our students, setting the stage for informal, insightful conversations.
  • Open Dialogue: Dive into an interactive Q&A. Enquire about our students’ projects, their vision, and their prep for the future. Meanwhile, they’re all ears to grasp the nuances of roles in your domain, emerging opportunities, and steps to stay ahead in the dynamic job landscape.

Your involvement doesn’t just spotlight prospective talents but reinforces community ties, unveils the aspirations of the next generation, and potentially sows the seeds for internships, training stints, or future recruitments.

Join us in this collaborative venture, bridging academia and industry, ensuring our students see and seize their professional futures, and offering businesses a sneak peek into the promise our youth hold.

Aldersley High School Champions SEND Careers: An Unforgettable Event

On the bustling day of 11th February 2022, Aldersley High School proudly transformed into the epicenter of the “SEND Preparing for Adulthood Careers Event.” Orchestrated to perfection, this event was the collaborative brainchild of the Black Country Skills Factory and Tettenhall Wood School.

The day saw a structured influx of students from two mainstream secondary schools and five specialized institutions across Wolverhampton. Specific time slots ensured each participant reaped maximum benefits from this immersive experience.

This event’s mission was crystal clear: To pave a guiding pathway for Wolverhampton’s SEND youth and their families as they stand at the crossroads of post-16 and post-18 opportunities. It wasn’t just about exploring avenues, but about forging real connections with employers celebrated for their inclusiveness and adaptability to support those with disabilities. Empowering our SEND youth to stride forward, brimming with confidence, was our cardinal aim.

The event was graced with a diverse ensemble of representatives: from local colleges and avant-garde training providers to agencies championing supported employment. We also hosted representatives from niche colleges, visionary inclusive employers, and nurturing social care settings. And to tie it all together, attendees had access to a cadre of support services, ready with insights and guidance.

Wolverhampton Hosts Inaugural SEND Careers Fair

A landmark event recently took place in Wolverhampton, marking the city’s first-ever careers fair exclusively for children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND). The event saw a massive turnout with approximately 450 students and teachers making their way to the venue.

This significant event orchestrated with the help of the City of Wolverhampton Council, who organised it in close partnership with The Black Country Consortium and Tettenhall Wood School. Chosen as the venue was the iconic Wolverhampton Racecourse.

It wasn’t just a day for the students and teachers. Parents, carers, and dedicated educational professionals who support these young minds in their day-to-day academic journeys also attended. The fair aimed to provide attendees with valuable information about the numerous pathways they might consider after school, whether that be further education, specialised training, or stepping into the world of employment.
